Hippocratic Arrogance

Rottenecards_3711530_xd6br5b52tSpice is nice but Incest is Best’.

If they are going to do this rather sick and nasty act, I just wish they wore protection.

You know, put a raincoat on, prevent conception. Do not under any circumstance visit the products of their choice to keep it in the family on the rest of us.

Next up on the hit parade: Retired Neurosurgeon, Darling of the Tea Party, Presidential Hopeful

Dr. Ben Carson


I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.

I will remember that I remain a member of society, with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm.

If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.

Except from the Modern Hippocratic Oath

There are no words, no polite ones anyway for this AssClown, this failure of humanity, this ideologue hot air bag. Why am I in such a tither about this wannabe relevant, two minutes of fame piece of feces? Well, let me put it right out there for you.

Dr. Ben Carson (R)

Dr. Ben Carson (R)

He is a Doctor, one who took the Oath above, you know to ‘prevent disease’ and ‘remember that he was a member of society’, one by the way with ‘special obligations to his fellow human beings’. Yes, indeed he is a Doctor, one who by the way was raised in poverty, who grew up with assistance from the government in the form of Medicaid, Welfare, Food Stamps and who attended college with the help of subsidies, government loans and Pell Grants. All programs he says are ‘bad’ for the nation, ‘bad’ for the poor. This special kind of something, bemoans in his book and in his appearances at CPAC and elsewhere that ‘government dependence kills initiative’. Guess what he really means, is it didn’t kill his but everyone else is beneath his contempt and concern.

How has the good doctor landed on my hit parade? Well, let me tell you as succinctly as is possible.

Ben Carson, MD while making the rounds of the talk shows, keeping his name and face out there and plying his brand of Right Wing idiocy, was asked by Hugh Hewitt a conservative talker the following:

HEWITT: Dr. you’re such a well-established and well-regarded national figure, the professor of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery, the head of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University. You’ve won the Presidential Medal of Freedom. You did the National Prayer Breakfast. You wrote One Nation. If President Obama called you up right now and said Dr. Carson, we need a surgeon general who will command respect and will generate calm, would you please serve, would you accept that?

Sucking up much?

Our fine doctor, who wants to be President of the United States of America someday, who retired from being a doctor to focus on politics, who by the way has never held public office with a resounding NO.

No, not even were he to be given free rein and no interference. Just NO. Because he doesn’t Trust the President.

Even the conservative Mr. Hewitt expressed shock at his answer. See the interview below.

Now let me tell you why Dr. Carson is my target for this award.

This man, who took an oath remember that one? Would refuse to serve in an administration in high office because of a difference in ideology, in fact he would refuse to serve the nation and its people, perhaps save American lives. That is what it comes down to, he would refuse to do what is best for the American People, people he wants to lead because he disagrees with the current President of the United States of America, an office by the way he wants to hold. This narrow minded, Tea Party Ass Kissing, Know Nothing, Suck Up just answered a rhetorical question and told us all we need to know about him.

He would never do what is right for all the people. He would never serve all the people. He would serve his masters, the Koch Brothers and their wealthy compatriots while the rest of the nation lay in the street in their own blood, puke and shit dying; he would laugh it off. He makes my list because he is transparent in his desires for power at any cost, including the despair and even deaths of others.

Worse yet, he is not alone but simply representative of a new breed of politician that have made their way into our mainstream and continue to be elected. Dr. Carson isn’t alone in his arrogance; he isn’t alone in his bold refusal to work with this administration to solve the nation’s problems. There are many who fit into the category and whose parents should have considered protection rather than forcing us to live with the results for their bad choices.

Thankfully, this was a rhetorical question and not one that would likely happen. Beware the wolves at the door, this is what we have to look forward to. This level of disdain. This level of superiority. If we don’t vote, if we don’t toss these slavish Koch owned GOP / Tea Party members out on their asses, send a message it is a nation For and By the People, Governed by Our Will and at Our Pleasure; this is what we have to look forward to.



Dr. Ben Carson isn’t alone in his ignorance and arrogance. Is this what you want in the halls of Congress and the White House?

VOTE! I voted yesterday when early voting opened in Texas. If you early vote it makes it easier on Election Day for those who wait, it shortens the lines. Do not let the doomsayers keep you away from the polls, vote and show them they are wrong.

  1. Excellent, well written post. Sounds like this Dr. Loser took the hypocrite oath. I early voted too. I’m worried about my district. The incumbent Congressman Scott Peters, a democrat, is being challenged by Carl DeMaio, an idiot Tea Party Republican, accused of sexual harassment by a former staffer, yet they’re running neck and neck! I can’t believe he’s actually a contender. DeMaio ran for SD Mayor against Bob Filner and lost. The two were such idiots, I remember thinking Filner was the lesser of two evils, and he ended up being forced to resign because of sexual harassment, so why anyone would consider voting for Carl is beyond me. So frustrating.

  2. Husband and I voted yesterday. Ladies, do not take the vote for granted! Great post!

  3. Oh boy!… I enjoyed this one Val.. and I am sure the wheat will be sorted from the chaff.. 🙂 as they say.. The World is full of these Egotistical climbers who forget the roots they came from 😉 But I always say this.. They may well have climbed high.. But when they fall, they have to meet all those they passed on the way up..

  4. I couldn’t see the video. I don’t know how seriously he’s being taken by the Republicans. Or anyone. I’m disappointed but not altogether surprised. There are many Clarence Thomases out there, so…What do we do? Continue to educate folk to vote.

  5. He is frightening. I’m glad he wouldn’t accept the Surgeon General post. Your ire is palpable, for sure, Valentine. BTW, my absentee ballot is in the mail. As long as I’m alive and kicking, my vote will count!

    • For every vote we cast one more voice is heard. It is critical we ignore the naysayers and dooms day talkers and speak up.

      He isn’t frightening, he is simply an ideologue who wants to get paid.

  6. I don’t know if I can even read this, Val. He makes my blood boil. How can you be a doctor, a scientist and say the things that come out of his mouth? How can you look at yourself in the mirror and go through the day spouting such dangerous drivel?

    This Uncle Ben’s brand of rice is politically and spiritually pathetic. Nice Post!!

  8. I would say his honesty–however disagreeable it is–lets us dodge a bullet. Our country does not need a surgeon general like that. He ruined any chance he might have at it, and it sounds like that’s a good thing for us all!

    Electing an American, with American ideals, ideas, and action plan, that doesn’t simply consist of name-calling fear mongering or just war.
